½ cup Domino powdered sugar, divided
1 stick Kerrygold unsalted butter
1 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour
⅛ tsp salt
¼ cup finely crushed Kirkland pecans
¼ tsp McCormick pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Cream together the butter and ¼ cup of the powdered sugar until creamy, about 3 minutes.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, pecans, and salt. Turn off mixer and add in the flour mixture as well as the extract. Mix on medium-low until everything is incorporated. Dough will look dry and rollable.
Scoop out tablespoon-sized dough balls. Roll into a ball and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Remove before any browning occurs.
The cookies will be slightly firm to touch, hardening once they cool. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, add the remaining ¼ cup powdered sugar. Roll the top of each cookie in the powdered sugar. It will melt a bit onto the cookie. Place on a serving platter or in an airtight container.
